policy experts formulating research, policies to reduce gun violence in the united states. tell me this. how does the united states compare to other countries? take the most industrialized countries in the world. is it as shocking as many would have us believe? >> yes, it is. if you compare united states homicide rates with other high-income countries in terms of their average homicide rates, ours is approximately six times higher than other countries of similar wealth. if you look at our firearm homicide rates, our rates are 22 times higher than other countries. >> dr. fox, you're an expert of school and mass shootings. and i suppose the obvious question for people like me that reacted with such horror to sandy hook and demand these assault weapons be removed from circulation is this -- would it actually make any difference? are they choosing these weapons because they're easy to get hold of? will they just go and find some other weapon that can do the same job for them? >> well, incidents like sandy hook certainly motivate us to do some reasonable, sensible things that we must do
